Quotes

Tommy: In Cuba, the torturers used to have a device, two thin metal spikes, placed here, that they adjusted, and slowly, millimeter by millimeter, pricked into the eyeballs.
Larry: You're kidding me. Those Communist motherfuckers.
Tommy: Well, no, Larry. These are the ones those Communist motherfuckers kicked out.

User Reviews

 
Not perfect but close. Heres why.
12 October 2012 | by dvfan94See all my reviews

There is something about this movie that captures you. It starts out quirky and comedic, but as the film progresses it becomes more serious. The ensemble cast gives it the feeling of a classic like Snatch, but this isn't an just an action film. It is more dramatic and you do feel for some of the characters. The movie does have some faults like some predictable plot points and the humor fails at some parts, but this shouldn't discourage you from watching the film. It is worth the price of the ticket. Seven Psychopaths is one of the better movies to come out this season. It doesn't disappoint. Its a great flick to go out with the guys. Colin Farell (hope I spelled it right, sorry Colin) adds another great performance to his belt.
